LOBBY OF NURSES RESIDENXE 



UAH! \1. STATKMKNT 



I [iSTORY 



Till'. New York Hospital, the second oldest hospital in 
America, maintained by private endowment, received its 
charter of incorporation under George the Third ot England on 

the thirteenth day of June, 177 1, under the title of the Society 
of the Hospital in the City of New York in America. Subse- 
quently by an Act of the Legislature in 18 10 the title was 
changed to The Society of The New York Hospital. 

The first systematic training for nurses, through lectures and 
practical instruction on the wards, was begun in 1799 under the 
direction and tutelage of Dr. Valentine Seaman and continued 
throughout his association with the hospital until 18 17. 

'Idie school ot nursing, an integral part of the hospital, cele- 
brated the sixtieth anniversary of its founding in 1937 and points 
with just pride to its fifteen hundred graduates who have served 
their communities in bedside care of patients in homes and hospi- 
tals and have shared in administration and teaching in hospitals, 
schools of nursing and public health organizations. 

In June 1927 The New York Hospital formed an association 
with the Cornell University Medical College. The resources of 
each institution were increased and an extensive program of 
building was begun. The new plant situated on York Avenue 
between Sixty-eighth and Seventy-first Streets was opened Sep- 
tember 1932 and offers unusual opportunities and facilities for 
the progressive development of the school of nursing. 

The school of nursing is registered with the Regents of New 
York State which permits its graduates to take the state board 
examinations in order to secure state registration and is also 
accredited by the National League of Nursing Education. 

The hospital is approved by the American College of Sur- 
geons, approved for internships by the American Medical Asso- 
ciation and is a member of the American Hospital Association.

Aims of the School of Nursing 

Nursing offers a challenge to young women with exceptional 
personal and professional qualifications who are interested in 
social welfare. The aim of The New York Hospital School 
of Nursing is to prepare carefully selected students in the 
fundamental principles of nursing in its various clinical aspects 
as applied to home, hospital and public health services, with 
emphasis upon health teaching. The development of the indi- 
vidual student as a responsible member of civic and social life is 
a significant outcome of the program. 

Facilities for the School 

A special building for the school of nursing is adjacent to the 
hospital buildings. It provides adequate and well equipped class- 
rooms, laboratories, library and recreation rooms as well as 
attractive and comfortable living accommodations for students 
and faculty. 

Further necessary laboratory and library facilities are avail- 
able through association with the Cornell University Medical 
College. 

The clinical facilities of The New York Hospital are unsur- 
passed for the care and study of patients. The hospital with a 
potential capacity of one thousand beds admits all types of 
patients including medical, surgical, obstetrical, gynecological, 
pediatric and psychiatric, and the out-patient department pro- 
vides ample opportunity for the study of ambulatory patients. 

Affiliation is made with the Henry Street Visiting Nurse Serv- 
ice for field experience in public health nursing and with the 
Lobenstine Clinic for demonstration and discussion of home de- 
livery and obstetric nursing care and for prenatal and postnatal 
instruction of the patient. 

The social service department of The New York Hospital 
participates in the nursing course through the integration of 
social service in the program of study.

Accrediting by Cornell University 

To those students who may later wish to matriculate at the 
New York State College of Home Economics, Cornell Uni- 
versity, if they present all other necessary requirements, the 
curriculum of The New York Hospital School of Nursing will 
be credited to the amount of not less than forty-five hours, which 
is equivalent to one and a half academic years of college credit, 
toward the Bachelor of Science degree. 

The Curriculum 

The three-year curriculum of the school of nursing is so 
planned as to give each student a thorough understanding of 
the basic sciences and principles underlying good nursing and 
of the best methods to use in the care of the sick, in the pre- 
vention of disease, and in health education. 

Each of the three school years is divided into terms of six- 
teen weeks each. 

During the first term and a half limited nursing practice is 
given in the pavilions of the hospital and the clinics of the out- 
patient department while a greater amount of time is spent in 
class and laboratory. In the subsequent seven and one-half terms 
the student's nursing practice increases in length of time and 
in responsibility. A sequence is planned to include the various 
types of clinical services during day, evening and night periods 
and visiting nursing in order that the student may acquire com- 
plete understanding of patients' needs. 

During these clinical terms each student is scheduled forty- 
eight hours per week which includes all class and nursing prac- 
tice assignments. 

Requirements of Scholarship for Promotion 
and Graduation 

Students are graded in their studies on a basis of weighted 
quality points with an average of two quality points required 
for promotion without condition and graduation. 

[ 12] 



The following grading system has been established : 

A — Excellent 4 quality points 

B — Good 3 quality points 

C — Average 2 quality points 

I) — Pass 1 quality point 

F — Failure o quality point 

I — Incomplete . . . Given in cases of absence and 

not because of poor scholarship 

A major warning is given if work is not of at least an average 

quality which is required for promotion without condition. 

A grade of C is required in the course Introduction to Nurs- 
ing Arts, a grade of B in that unit dealing with dosage. A grade 
of D in nursing practice in any major field of nursing places 
a student on major warning. 

Failure in any given subject may necessitate withdrawal from 
the school unless the student's scholarship is exceptional in other 
respects in which case repetition of the course may be recom- 
mended by the instructor. 

(•I neral Administrative Policies 

The New York Hospital School of Nursing reserves the 
privilege of retaining in the school only those students who in 
the judgment of its faculty satisfy its requirements of scholar- 
ship, health and personal suitability for the nursing profession. 

It also reserves the prerogative of changing its curriculum, 
educational policies and fees as deemed necessary for the pro- 
gressive development of the school.

dents. A well equipped infirmary with necessary staff is pro- 
vided in the nurses' residence. A physical examination by the 

[16] 



school physician with chest x-rays is required upon admission to

regular intervals. 

Gratuitous infirmary care for minor illnesses will be limited 
to four weeks at any one time in the case of all students. For 
more serious illnesses students will be cared for gratuitously in 
the hospital for not more than two weeks at any one time for the 
first-year students and not more than four weeks at any one 
time for second and third year students. Expenses for special 
nursing care and special therapies must be borne by the student 
or her familv. 



Vacations and Other Absences 

During the first and second years a vacation of four weeks 
is given and during the third year one of two weeks. For first- 
year students one week's vacation is planned at Christmas (see 
calendar) and three weeks during the summer term. For all 
second-year students a vacation of four weeks is planned dur- 
ing the summer term of the year. For third-year students a two 
weeks' vacation is given during any one of the three terms. 
This vacation is not given to those students who have an ex- 
emption of time. 

All vacations are arranged by the school of nursing to con- 
form to the requirements of the educational program and the 
fields in which clinical practice is obtained. 

Except for first-year students during their first term, holidays 
are observed only in connection with class schedules. 

As a result of absences the repetition of a course of study 
or special examinations may be required; class registration may 

[ 17] 



be changed and in necessary instances nursing practice will have 
to be made up. 

Student Loan Fund 

A student loan fund has been established to give necessary 
financial aid to those who show promise in nursing. These finan- 
cial benefits are not available to first-year students until after 
their first term's work. 

Applications for student loans should be made in writing to 
the Director of the School. 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR OPPORTUNITIES 

Believing that the education of young women today must 
include activities relating to healthful social relationships gen- 
erous provision for this development in the life of the student 
has been made. 

The beautiful fireproof, sixteen-story residence, erected adja- 
cent to the hospital buildings, is the center for these activities. 
Every effort has been made in its construction and equipment to 
provide for the normal and healthy life of students and faculty. 

Each of the eight student residence floors contains attractively 
furnished single bedrooms with lavatories, ample common baths, 
showers and toilet facilities, a common sitting-room with ad- 
joining kitchenette for informal gatherings and a laundryette. 

Comfortable lounges, reading, reception and dining-rooms are 
on the first and ground floors. 

For further recreational activities, a large well equipped gym- 
nasium, billiard-room, game-room, tennis courts and porches are 
available. Arrangements for the use of an outdoor playground 
and an indoor swimming pool are made. 

To insure the full benefit and proper use of these facilities 
well qualified instructors are appointed to direct the social and 
recreational activities of the school. 

School Government 

The school of nursing has a cooperative government in which 
the students take an active part. A student organization has 

[18] 




A ROOM OF HER OWN 




SUNDAY MORNING BREAKFAST IN THE FLOOR SITTING ROOM 



been established and functions with the Faculty Committee 
on Student Extra-Curricular Activities in all matters relating to 
social and professional conduct and discipline.
